I have had this pop up several times in the last few weeks but have always avoided it because it isn't from Mozilla.

You are right it is not from Mozilla as Mozilla would only put downloads for Firefox on a *.mozilla.org page. The fake urgent update page with a orange background and large Firefox icon was made to try and distract people from the fact it was on a random weird site url and not from Mozilla.

This is not from Mozilla or the Firefox web browser. The fake firefox-patch.exe and firefox-patch.js files can install things like trojans, viruses, unwanted software or to download additional stuff onto Windows based on past reports if the user runs them.

The way Firefox updates are done internally in Firefox (with a .mar type of file) has not really changed whether on Windows, Mac OSX or Linux (since Firefox 1.5 almost eleven years ago) or by download from mozilla.org like say www.mozilla.org/firefox/all/

You could try using a adblocker extension like uBlock Origin to block theses fake ads if you keep getting them. https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/ublock-origin/

Unfortunately this has gone on for over the course of some months now with a new site still reported often. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/forums/contributors/712056/

Even if you were to download this firefox-patch.js file it is not a risk unless you were to try and run it.

What is it? A fake update?

. Whenever you get a message / popup that software / files need to be updated;

DO NOT USE ANY OF THE PROVIDED LINKS

While this may be a legitimate message, it could also be Malware or a Virus. Anytime you want or need to check for upgrades, go to the website of the True Owner of the program in question. For example, to check out Firefox, go to https://www.mozilla.org {web link}

You can report such a site at; Google Report Phishing Page {web link} which is the same when done while on site by going to Help > Report Web Forgery

Help us safeguard Mozilla’s trademarks by reporting misuse {web link}

For the last eight months, an epidemic of Fake Update Notices have been popping up all over the place. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/i-found-fake-firefox-update
